My time here was absolutely amazing! Not only are you supported by Selene and her family but you get to experience rural South Africa. Selene is an incredible woman, she is extremely friendly and made me feel part of her family. I felt totally comfortable and safe staying here.
The projects that she creates are purely for the benefit of the children of Ruste Stastie Primary School. On top of having a family and a restaurant business, Selene still finds time to not only organise projects, raise funds, find volunteers and dedicate her time and energy to her charity, but she also runs free bible classes for the students and counsels them. She is a truly inspiring woman.
The children of Rust Stasie are absolutely beautiful and are so happy to have volunteers come and visit their small community. They were very interested in my travels and life back in Australia and asked me endless questions. When I left I got a lot of lovely notes from them thanking me for coming to their home which was really touching.
It was a great experience helping in the school and living with Selene and her family for 2 weeks. I will never forget my time and hopefully will return one day.
